About Awbury Arboretum

Urban Location, Natural Landscape, Historic Setting

Tucked away in the historic Germantown neighborhood of Northwest Philadelphia, Awbury Arboretum is a vibrant landscape with a rich history.  Once the private enclave of an extended Quaker family, Awbury Arboretum has been open to the public free of charge as a public park and arboretum for nearly 100 years. Its 55-acre historic landscape now stands as a green oasis in a densely-populated urban environment.

Nature, history, and community intersect at Awbury, and the Awbury Arboretum Association is committed to stewarding the relationships between these three pillars of our mission, and continuing to tell and write its story.

Please take some time to explore the Arboretum online, and then come experience it in person. We know you’ll be glad you did.
